Boars, Gore, and Swords

I Am. As soon as Hippolyta went to work on Hiram’s Orrery, you knew this ep was going to be fire. Ivan & Red talk Afrofuturism, the supernatural, and Hippolyta inevitably taking her natural place as the leader of the gang.

A History of Violence. Only after Holy Ghost could an episode with a severed arm in a door be a reprieve and a fun romp through adventure tropes. Ivan & Red ditch Tree and talk pulpy adventure tropes!
